    Definitely not, it is an even number. It is 2 times 2 and 3 times 3. :D (2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3)

    The Indo-Iranian Aryans were supposed to worship their house-hold fire (Garpatya Agni) five times a day. I mean, probably in ancient times, they tended the embers five times a day, since they lived in cold and initially wet regions. They were given the fire from the hearth of the groom's father at the time of marriage, and were supposed not to let the fire die during their whole life time. If it did, they had to bring it back from the groom's father's place.

    True. Origins of Advaita Vedanta are hoary. Whom do you consider the third acharya other than Sankara and Ramanuja? Bhaskara (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhedabheda)? There were many advaita acharyas before Sankara. This might be useful: Advaita Vedanta - Wikipedia
